The building

We have a separate accessible entrance that leads in to the ground floor of the museum. The learning library, shop and ground floor exhibitions are all accessible from here and there is a fully accessible toilet.

The garden is fully accessible from the ground floor and has paths throughout.

The first floor is only accessible via a staircase, which is wide in design with features large steps.

If you wish to discuss your visit with our team before you arrive, please do get in touch.

Below is our access statement and a visual story which aims to support children, young people and adults with Autistic Spectrum conditions, communication difficulties, other learning disabilities and those with English as a second language. It can be used to help them have a better experience in the building. Makaton™ symbols are used to help communicate information.
